It’s something the Scots are proud of as a nation. Golfing history cannot be matched anywhere on the planet. Also, many of the courses are up there with the world’s best. Furthermore, there is evidence of golf played in the 15th century. Moreover, the first mention of golf played in Scotland was in 1457, when James II banned both golf and football through an Act of Parliament.  In addition, it wasn’t until 1744 that things started to become more ‘official’.  On the 7th March 1744, The Gentlemen Golfers of Leith Links became the ‘Company of Edinburgh Golfers’ and created the first 13 rules.  Furthermore, The Honourable Company of Edinburgh Golfers originally governed ‘the rules of golf’ until the last nineteenth century, when the responsibility was eventually passed to the R&A in St Andrews.

As voted by National Geographic Top Rated Places to Visit – “A wonderful region of Scotland. Beaches are fantastic, and the area welcomes visitors as one of their own. Largely rural. People work together for the greater good–fishermen tolerate canoeists; farmers allow walkers to pass over their land on footpaths, etc.”
